Product Info

Lift-assisted sidecountry is probably the best bang-for-buck snowboarding experience around: expertly timing the opening of your local mountain's backcountry gates for hot laps can get you as many pow turns as a cat day. The Burton AK Side Country 20L Backpack is designed to carry all your safety essentials in a low-profile form factor that won't throw you off as you're riding in-bounds, waiting for the patrols to drop the ropes. It'll carry a solid board and your helmet when you're in sight of the chair, or your splitboard or snowshoes for trips from the parking lot.

Side Compression StrapsThe name pretty much says it all – but these straps help cinch down your bag, minimize volume, and keep your gear from banging around when active. Some of our compression straps can also double up as a stash spot for a spare jacket or other piece of gear on the outside of the pack.
